When I switch on my printer it makes a noise like grinding. Can this problem be solved ?

There is some jamming in the head /cartridge mechanism of the printer as it seems the motor is not able to move freely. Remove the covers and check manually the motor movement , turn the motor and see if the belt moves around the drive freely moving the head assembly , if the belt is also worn out this noise is possible.
If so replace belt. other wise a reset of the mechansim must solve the issue if there are no damaged parts in the mechanism.

Canon i9950 printer head stays on the right hand side

Check if the traction belt is in tension, you may need to replace the traction belt or the motor.
Try moving the carriage on the rail, if it does not improve you need to take apart the printer and replace either the traction belt or the motor.

The print head doesn't appear to be connected to the belt drive on my Epson C62. Is there a clip that has come undone that I can re-attach?  Prior to this I was experiencing a clanking noise when the...

if the carriage still moves, it's not the belt that has come undone. the best thing to do is remove the top cover (4 screws: two inside the front door, two on the back of the printer) and carefully remove the transparent ribbon that runs through the back of the ink carriage and clean this ribbon. it is used to measure the carriage's movement. be carefull not to stretch out the torsion spring. while you re-mount the ribbon, you can check if the drive belt is well fixed within the back of the carriage.

The printing carriage stalled and I get error message : Clear carriage jam ..

This normally happens if there is something jammingthe head assembly from moving along the carriage rail. Turn off the power to the printer and see if you can move the head assembly by hand. Also check that there are no paper jams anywhere in the paper path and that the belt that moves the head assembly has not broken.

Start the machine with the lid raised so you can see the print head. I think you find the drive belt for the head is going round but the head is not moving. This makes a dreadful noise and sounds worse than it is.

Make sure the cartridge carrier lid is closed and not stopping the head from moving. Next thing to look at is the head lock. If you look behind the drive belt with the print head at home position you should be able to see a white bit of plastic poking through from behind the rail. Use your finger, a pen, screwdriver or whatever and just push the white back through the rail

Check that the head can be moved by hand and power the machine on and off a couple times, just to make sure the drive for the lock is not broken.

Printer not working-making noise

there might be somethng jammed in the printer, Look and see if there is anything there...
if not then unplug the printer and move the print head all the way to the other side being carefull not to force it. If ou have to use a lot of force to move it then somethng is jamming it.

With the print head all the way to the other side look at the drive belt(the thing that moves to move the print head its like a rubber belt with groves it should go all the way across the printer) and the cables abd ensure its in correctly..

Turn the printer back on and it should work..

If not then take the printer apart and look at all the gears and bands to see if anyis broken or out of place. replace broken components or fit what ever has slipped ut of place back and you should be fine.

Printer head is immobile

Take a look at the belt closely,

1- there should be grooves,sometimes these belts start to fall apart, the grooves actually start to fall off  and don't grab the printhead.

If you look inside of the printer are there any black pieces? If so say goodbye, It is almost impossible to find replacement parts.


2- test by moving the printhead to a different location with it off then turn on to see if it moves.
